I am pleased to announce the results of the 2009 Kinda Gay Awards! We had such wonderful nominees, and the judges were fantastic to work with, and I've enjoyed the hell out of running this site and recognizing works and authors in a sub-genre that often get overlooked.

So without further ado...

Oh...wait, really? I thought I was making fun of you because you don't know how to type what you want to say. I've never heard anyone say that. o.O

But it's kinda cute, actually. ^-^

Reminds me of when you had to explain what dandy meant to me...good times...
